Laundry Room Organization Under-$100

Thanks andThat! for sponsoring this post.

You may recall that I am in the midst of a fun four-part shopping challenge with andThat! stores. If you missed my first post, you can find it here.

Today I am excited to introduce our newly renovated little mudroom/laundry nook, and to show you how I am stocking and organizing it with some very affordable items from andThat! In fact, I was able to snag all the andThat items used in this space for under-$100!

To provide some background on this space before diving into this post, our downstairs laundry room is small, so when we recently renovated our home, I decided to make the most of the space, but didn't want to break the budget! We were able to gain a tad more space from one of the walls that bordered our garage, and added a stackable washer/dryer. Moving our side-by-side washer and dryer out of the space, allowed for a counter top and open shelving. I added shiplap to the back wall and a butcher block counter top.

My vision for this room is to have a pretty space to fold laundry and also to store household items.

Here's some of the the goodies I found at andThat! and how they are helping my new laundry room stay organized ::

1. Mason Jars. Maybe it's my Southern upbringing, but I love mason jars!! We use them around the house as drinking glasses and vases, but I have never used them in my laundry room until now. andThat! has an impressive selection of mason jars in all sizes, and the prices were unbeatable! In fact, I was able to score all six of these jars for under $15! I filled them with my essential oils that I use for laundry, Oxyclean, Tide Detergent Pods, dryer sheets, Woollite and Liquid Tide. I think they look so cute and keep my new laundry space free of bottles! 

I was also able to score all of these brand name detergents, dryer sheets and even a new lint roller at andThat! at great prices, and love that I should shop it all in one place.

2. Storage baskets. When it comes to organization, baskets are my best friends. I love the look of mixing up the colors, textures and materials of baskets, and andThat! has a great variety. Again, I was super-impressed by the price-point and quality of andThat!'s baskets, so I stocked up on several shapes and sizes. It's amazing how cute baskets can make everyday items like paper towels look pretty on display. 

I am still in the midst of filling all the baskets on the shelves {yay for newly created storage!}, but some of the items I have sorted into individual baskets are :: Swiffer pads, light bulbs, party supplies, batteries, cocktail napkins and toilet paper/paper towels.

3. Hampers/Floor Baskets. Last but not least, I love the coordinating floor baskets I found at andThat! I am using these two larger baskets as laundry hampers for sorting, and I plan to pick up another one or two next time I visit andThat! These are the perfect size for storing laundry, and they look stylish, too!

Now that the kids are back in school, it's the perfect time to organize! My advice is to start with something small and attainable, create a plan of attack and then to head to andThat! for some of your organizational supplies. If you live in/around the Atlanta area, our local andThat! store is in Kennesaw and worth a little road-trip to visit!

Stay tuned for the next shopping challenge with andThat! coming soon...it is going to involve wine, so you will want to be sure check it out! 

Stylishly yours,

Beautycounter 20% off Sitewide Sale + Top Five Favorites

LaurenComment

If you have been following me here on the blog or on social media for any amount of time, it's no secret that I love Beautycounter skincare and makeup products. I have been on the journey to switching my own daily regime + my family's personal care products to safer over the past year and a half, and cannot say enough about the quality, safety and high-performing results of these products.

Beautycounter is offering a 20% off site-wide sale now through August 13th with code LOVE, in hopes of getting safer products into the hands of more people. I love it, and haven't seen Beautycounter offer such a big promotion ever! If you have been on the fence about trying Beautycounter, this is THE TIME! {All Beautycounter products are backed by a 60 day no questions asked return/exchange policy, so there is no risk to try!}

Here are my top five favorite Beautycounter products, all currently 20% off ::

1. Tint Skin Foundation :: This is my go-to everyday foundation. The coverage is light and luminous, yet covers hyper-pigmentation and discoloration. My skin gets compliments all the time for looking smooth and glowy, and I owe a lot of it to this product. {I recommend applying with this foundation brush for the best coverage and to save product during application!} I wear the color Sand, one of the most common shades. If you order a color not perfect for you, we can swap it out! Head over to my Five Minute Face Tutorial post to see me apply this product + my other Beautycounter makeup favorites.

2. Balancing + Charcoal Facial Mask. My favorite mask EVER. I apply it religiously 1-2 x a week. The charcoal clarifies skin and pulls out impurities. I also use as a spot treatment! My daughter loves this mask, too, and I love that it's safe for her to use, as well!

3. Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion. I like to describe this as a "one-size-fits-all" moisturizer. It works for dry skin, oily skin, aging skin, young skin...everyone! It's patented technology adapts to your skin all day, giving it exactly what it needs. Literally everyone I know who has tried this loves it. My husband uses it daily, too! {My skin is combination and I love that it doesn't leave a greasy finish, and layers perfect under makeup.}

4. Body Butter. In my opinion, one of the most important products to switch to safer is body lotion since you apply it to so much of your body's "real estate." I use this Body Butter each time after I shower. It's super luxe and moisturizing without any greasy after-feel, and it smells great1 My kids love to put it on after bath-time, too.

5. Color-Intense Lip Stick. If you are a lip-stick loving gal like me, you need to join me in taking what you put on your lips throughout the day more seriously! {SO much lead and toxins are in the typical lipstick!} I love that this new color-intense lipstick delivers a serious pop of color with lots of hydration and staying power. It feels great on the lips! My favorite colors are Girl's Night, Garden Party and First Date.

How to Style Summer Neutrals

LaurenComment

Anthropologie top | Red Dress Boutique shorts | Red Dress Boutique tote | Red Dress Boutique earrings | Dolce Vita wedges | Sonix sunglasses

One of my favorite looks for late-summer is an all-neutral outfit. It's a color-scheme that is always timeless and classic, and is a great way to transition white denim into early-Fall.

Achieving this look is easy to do :: Simply pair white jeans or white shorts with a cream/beige/or off-white top, sweater or jacket and mix with taupe/cognac colored accessories! Adding white or gold jewelry to the mix always works. If an off-white/cream color is not your favorite, try a blush or olive green...both maintain this neutral palette and can be more flattering on some skin tones!

I recently found this perfectly neutral textured tee at Anthropologie, and love the fringe-texture and fit. I'll pair it with blue jeans, ankle booties and layer under a jacket for Fall. {I am wearing a size small for reference.}

Pairing this outfit with summery accessories like this $38 straw tote and $22 white statement earrings make it a great look for a beach vacation. Then replacing the straw bag with a leather one will carry this outfit right into the city.

Here are some neutral tops I am loving ::
